Former Ohio State legend Evan Turner has already completed his first NBA Summer league, but that hasn’t stopped the fans of his old Big Ten rivals from still talking smack at him online. I guess when you shoot just 33%, and your play doesn’t come anywhere close to living up to your hype during the five game NBA summer season, detractors will come out of the woodwork. Including whomever runs the Twitter account for The Paint Crew, Purdue’s student cheering section.
This is good stuff- enjoy!

THE PAINT CREW @thekidet O$U cares more about the backup gunner on the scout teams punt coverage unit than they ever will about a bball player
Since we’re discussing Evan Turner and smack talk- here’s a Flipshare video I shot during the Big Ten Tournament of that very individual, discussing that very topic. It just went over 10,000 views yesterday. Huzzah! And there’s a still capture from it on the Fox Sports Ohio St. homepage to promote another Turner article up now
